Can't see the blending here Matt, looks like you actually stuffed a full banana in your gob!

P.S. You know you want to animate this...

can you do this with a galia melon?
19 Nov 2004 2:50AM
ROFL!! Jim - now that's a thought!! LOL!
19 Nov 2004 2:52AM
It's the godfather of fruit!! Fantastic image Matt, really made me smile.

I'd pay good money to see you trying it with a galia melon...

P.S. What software do you use for the animations?
19 Nov 2004 3:18AM
Tracy - thanks Smile
Matt - ROFL! Now I might just find a way of getting a galia melon into you with PS!!!
I use Adobe ImageReady (part of the Creative Suite Pro) - you build up the parts in layers in PS, then switch straight to ImageReady and animate away. Only thing is you can't rotate - just move, fade, and do layer effects. So you have to think about layers carefully...

This has given me my first good laugh of the day. Love it!

Bugger, that stuff is expensive. Might have to save for a bit to get Adobe Creative Suite...

Quote Mattmatic "ROFL! Now I might just find a way of getting a galia melon into you with PS!!!" that sounds rude... I think we should have the adult option for comments as well!
